Get the protection you need before you make a home purchase

When you're ready to purchase real estate, you need to know what you're getting into. Residential properties can be worth lots of money, but they can have many problems that require upkeep and repair as well. Before you sign a contract to purchase a home, make sure you're protected.

A real estate transaction involves large amounts of money transferring from you to someone else. There is risk involved, including finding out that the property is damaged or finding out the contract isn't as clear as you thought it was. Before you get too deep into a property purchase, it's important to have an experienced lawyer or advocate read over your contract and go over the potential red flags with you. You want to know that you're getting the best deal possible for your situation with the least amount of risk.

With the right help, you can review the contract to make sure your property is safe to move into. You can review what happens if the deal was bad; do you have legal recourse against the previous owner? Make sure you review the lending terms of borrowing money, too. You should be able to see the payback dates, terms, and amount you will owe clearly; the last thing you want is to have more penalties and charges because of missed payments or unclear deadlines.

You have every right to a property that you know everything about; whether you want to purchase a foreclosure or a new build. Making sure you're getting what you're paying for is very important. Our website has more information on what to ask and how to make sure you're getting a good deal.
